6 Times Beyoncé Slayed After An Onstage Snafu

To err is human. To err, barely flinch, and move on like a pro is divine.

This weekend, Beyoncé once again proved she's the survivor she always said she was by performing with her ear dripping blood like it was no big deal. The pop star's earring somehow got ripped out during her Tidal X charity concert on Saturday night, causing some carnage to her lobe in the process. And what did Bey do? She noted the blood...and kept on singing.

It's not like this is her first rodeo. The singer has been grabbed by a human fan, sliced and diced by a mechanical fan, and fallen victim to the laws of gravity on stage. But she has yet to miss a beat. She's slaying, making lemonade, and hardly breaking a sweat. She's a professional, and it's time to pay her her due.

Watch her touch her ear, register the blood, and keep going. Wanna bet someone on the cleaning crew is now selling said blood sample for millions on eBay?

Wigs and swirling fan blades don't mix, but that didn't stop Bey from continuing to belt out "Halo" while helpers rushed to free her hair.

2013: The Grabby Fan, Part 2
Nobody wants to stand next to the sweaty shirtless guy at a concert, and they certainly don't want to be grabbed by him. This concertgoer in Brazil went all Donald Trump on Queen Bey, who kept her cool as her security team moved in. Dude's skull is probably now an ashtray in Jay Z's office.

2007: The Stairway To Hell
Ring the alarm! Guys, we almost lost Beyoncé. Though this tumble down the stairs is painful to watch, it's also a demonstration in bouncing back like a pro — and why long coats are hella dangerous.
